Russian Doll Original Pitch Featured Jordan Peele As The Love Interest

When they were originally pitching Russian doll, Peele’s casting made perfect sense. He would have been fresh out of his comedy sketch series Key and Peele, which he co-created with Keegan Michael-Key. The duo had also just followed this series with the comedy film Keanu, which received a mixed reception at the box office. There’s no way the Russian doll the creators could have known that Peele was about to embark on a journey that would culminate in a new chapter as a horror writer, directing the films get out, Weand the future sci-fi western Nopeas well as the production candy manot, Lovecraft Countryand the new blurred area.

Russian doll actually dodged a bullet, because if they had gone on the air at the time with that original pitch, they almost certainly wouldn’t have had Peele come back for Russian doll season 2. He almost entirely pivoted to a career behind the camera as a director, producer and writer, usually only playing voice roles like the Netflix animated series Big mouth and Pixar toy story 4. This would have given Season 2 a very different tenor and possibly dashed the excitement for a potential Season 3, which the series is currently enjoying.
